we feel that if you can make a personal connection, find a new perspective, you're able to make change. you're able to move the dialogue forward. >> i know it was interesting to me, you mentioned senator rob portman, who because his son told him that he was gay, he changed his position on same sex marriage. that's a signal to you. >> i mean, i respect him so much for, you know, respecting his son and his choices, but i think because that he felt that so personally, he was able to make that change. i wonder, i believe this with all my heart, that if any of the senators and congressmen and women were in our shoes for one day, one hour, and felt the pain that we have without our daughter, you know, maybe they would find their own moral compass and take action over inaction. >> you're thinking if they experienced what you have been through, they would know, understand a little bit more what it's like and actually work more towards some sort of legislation?
